- Tasting Notes:
The color is ruby with violet tinges. The nose has aromas of cherry, red forest fruits and discreet spicy notes. The palate has a well balanced acidity and a medium plus body; fragrant of fresh blackcurrant - blackberry fruit, red pepper and hints of black chocolate. It has a medium-length finish with firm tannins. Enjoy it now or after 4 to 6 years of ageing.Domaine Gioulis
"The red SOFOS has a deep ruby colour with aromas of plum, sour cherry and hints of truffle and oak. On the palate we found medium plus acidity, soft tannins and a great complexity of flavours such as dried plum, raisin and notes of wet leaves and tobacco. It is a quality red wine which is ready to drink but also with a good potential of ageing. It combines the spicy and fruity aromas of the indigenous Agiorgitiko with the structure and the complexity of the famous Cabernet Sauvignon."Konstantinos Lazarakis
Sofos benefits from decanting to release its aromatics as when they blossom the wine really comes alive. Gorgeous notes of raspberries and blackberries with bramble and fresh cherry pipe tobacco on the nose give way to lush notes of under-ripe blackberry. Boysenberry, black currant, black plum, and sour cherry on the palate. Silky mouthfeel and full body finish with spicy notes of cinnamon, anise, black pepper, and crushed graphite. The flavors linger while the prominent acidity begs for another sip.NM
